We know who you work for, George W...

...and it's not for us.

WorldNet Daily, one of the few media outlets with the guts to hold the government accountable for the persecution of Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean, reports an unsurprising -- but still unacceptable -- part of the story in this article.

The first two paragraphs pretty well sum it up:

The Mexican Consulate demanded the prosecution of Texas Sheriff's Deputy Guillermo "Gilmer" Hernandez, who subsequently was brought to trial by U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton, according to documents obtained by WND.

WND also has learned the Mexican Consulate played a previously undisclosed role in the events leading to Sutton's high-profile prosecution of Border Patrol Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean, who are serving 11 and 12 year sentences for their role in the shooting of a drug smuggler.

When Mexico talks, George Bush listens, and then sets his unprincipled attack dogs loose to punish American citizens who work to uphold the laws he doesn't believe in.

One has to wonder what his payoff for kowtowing to the corrupt politicians in Mexico City will be.

There is no need to wonder what his atrocious open-borders policies are for us: You can see it broken down by the numbers here.

Of course Compean, Ramos and Hernandez are paying a much heavier price.

Unbelievable. This is so much bigger than watergate or monica, but it is doubtful it will ever be seen as such.
Probably because there are so many other examples of out of control legal abuse.
Do they worry about our civil rights in Mexico? Or only if we can commit a crime in the process.

HO'F -- no illegal, whether from the U.S. or South America, is safe in Mexico. They want to control their borders, while insisting we leave ours wide open for them.

Another case in which the public debate is phony and the players are different than what the public is told.

Another bipartisan effort.

We have yet to find the real motive I think. Already the small stuff is evident; drug money, and more.
Obviously there is some big strangeness up between the US and Mexican governments. Like always with these people, who cares whose life gets ruined along the way.
